The scores of players that fail to complete all rounds will be extrapolated to render a total score. E.G. Wins 2 out of 3, extrapolated to 4 out of 6.

Byes: Random byes will be chosen from the lowest scoring players in each round. No player will have more than one bye.
Rules: Full Biba rules will be used for all events.
